Plan a Visit

You don’t have to plan your visit. You really can just drop in! But here are some tips for those who like to know before they go.

How to get here: We’re located at 5515 Phinney Avenue N., across the street from the Woodland Park Zoo. The number 5 bus line stops right in front of our main entrance. There’s a parking lot in back that’s available for you anytime you come to see us.

When to come: Worship is every Sunday at 10:30pm. Drop on by!

If you don’t want to attend worship for your first visit, or at all, visit our calendar or seasonal news for other events. We’d love to see you at any other activity, like a concert, block party, free meal, community game night or bible study.

If want to talk with a staff member, you can drop in during office hours which are usually Monday – Thursday from 8am – 1pm. To meet with the pastor, call the church office or send an email to pastor@stjohnunited.org.

What to wear: Whatever you want. Really. In worship, you’ll see fancy Easter hats, suits and bowties, summer dresses, short and jeans and baby carriers or spit up rags. The most important thing is that you bring yourself. Don’t let choosing the “right outfit” be a barrier. The right outfit is the one you have on.

If you are holding yourself back from coming to visit us because you are in need of clean clothes, please don’t let that stop you. We want to meet you! Talk to someone in leadership, like the pastor or a worship assistant, for support with getting basic needs met.

What to expect: If you come for worship, there will be people buzzing around, catching up and keeping busy in preparation for services. Ushers will hand you a bulletin and invite you sit wherever you want. Contrary to popular belief, there is no assigned seating. Feel free to spend the time before worship however you like – read the bulletin, check out the view from the lounge behind the sanctuary, meet a new person, have a cup of coffee, or simply sit in silence and admire beauty of the sanctuary.
